Artistic Operations Manager
This position requires the efficient and effective management of the artistic duties of Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, covering our concert seasons at the Melbourne Recital Centre, our regional touring program, education program, external hires and special events. Normally, MCO would stage around 50 performances and events, more than half of which are in regional Victoria or peri-urban Melbourne. Due to COVID-19, we are presenting alternative chamber-music programming online and, as safety permits, in venue.
This is a very responsible management role within our small team. You will bring your experience and self-motivation to ensure best-practice approaches to all aspects of our performance program. You will look ahead to prevent problems; pre-empt the needs of colleagues and musicians; have strong planning skills; and systematic work practices. You will have excellent interpersonal skills to maintain appropriate relationships and communication with all stakeholders.
Applications close 5pm AEST 30 July 2020.
For full details, criteria and application information, please see the Position Description.
MCO is a not-for-profit orchestra and receives only around 5% of its annual operational funding from governments. We couldn’t continue to bring our concerts to you without the wonderful support of our volunteers. Volunteering positions include general administrative, front of house, data entry, marketing and fundraising support. You may have valuable skills that MCO could use!
We are currently seeking applications for new MCO volunteers. If you would be interested in volunteering your time, please call us on (03) 9820 0679 to discuss or complete a Volunteer Application Form and return it to MCO.
MCO is a professional orchestra. MCO performers have tertiary-level qualifications in music and have many years of orchestral and chamber music experience.
